HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATIONS JOIN DESOTO MAYOR AT QUARTERLY MEETING
Wide-Ranging Discussion Touches Infrastructure, Law & Order, US Census and Development
Mayor Curtistene McCowan held her 360 Quarterly Meeting with representatives of DeSoto’s homeowners associations (HOAs) and other area officials on the evening of March 7th at the DeSoto Civic Center. The meeting is designed to provide for discussion of a wide range of issues impacting the quality of life for DeSoto residents and to encourage 360-degree communication.
“I always look forward to these quarterly meetings because they promote greater interaction with the key members of our homeowners associations and our residents,” said DeSoto Mayor Curtistene S. McCowan. “We actively solicit their input at these meetings and work hard to address problems on the spot or to get the ball rolling towards a more comprehensive solution.”
Thursday night’s meeting addressed many different issues ranging from traffic enforcement and police issues, infrastructure maintenance, private property upkeep, economic development and DeSoto’s participation in the 2020 US Census.
Elma Goodwin, from the Silver Creek Estates Homeowners Association, is a long time attendee to the Mayor's 360 Quarterly Meetings. Goodwin said that the meetings are very beneficial in a number of ways, and cited the reasons: “Number one is that you can bring your concern if you haven’t already gotten it taken care of. And you can hear the concerns of others to see what they’re experiencing and what is also being experienced in your neighborhood. And thirdly, you get to meet other leaders in the homeowners association arena.”
The Mayor's 360 Quarterly Meetings are held quarterly and begin at 6:30 p.m. at 211 E. Pleasant Run Road. The next Mayor's 360 Quarterly meeting is tentatively scheduled for June 6, 2019, in the DeSoto Civic Center.
